Three months after the Ukrainian military launched its counteroffensive, the Royal Institute for Defence and Security Studies has released a report analyzing the latest war situation. The Ukrainian side stated that the pace at which troops are advancing to avoid exhaustion of soldiers and others is slow, and the Western side stressed that it is essential to provide continuous military support into the next year.
The Royal Institute for Defence and Security Studies released a report on June 4 analyzing the operations of the reversal offensive that the Ukrainian military began in June.
In it, he analyzes the tactics of the Ukrainian army as "recapturing the positions of the Russian army while keeping losses small" and trying to avoid exhaustion of soldiers and weapons.
As a result, the pace at which Ukrainian troops are advancing is slow, about 6 to 5,700 meters in five days, giving the Russian army room to regain their land.
He also pointed out that the Russian military "has increased the width of the minefield from the initial 1200 meters to 120 meters to prevent the Ukrainian army from quickly entering the position," and that it is adapting its tactics according to the war situation.
"Russia is likely to try again to destroy infrastructure across Ukraine, hoping that the reversal offensive will pause in the winter."
In relation to the outlook for the future, the report pointed out that "it is important to invest now for Ukraine to gain a long-term advantage, and if it does not provide timely assistance, it will pay a heavy price next year," and stressed that it is essential for the Western side to provide continuous military support into the coming year.
